Even then, hipper than Madonna.
You could tell she was no debutante.
True, when I met her at the restaurant, she was indeed not a debutante…
Many, many moons ago, I saw her in a double bill with Tears for Fears as a solo act, though she of course played all her songs from Blondie. I believe that was 1990.
She came out for the encore with a full length fur coat on, then dropped it half way through the song to show off her bikini. What a fun show.
And of course, as a teen she was in a typical 60’s Eastern-influenced hippy rock band before Blondie as well.
I didn’t think she could be hotter, but… there ya go.
Debbie Harry, Head Model.
And you try to run but he’s got a gun
And he shoots you dead and he eats your head
And then you’re in the man from Mars
And all this time, I thought she meant the PLANET Mars…
And now it’s finally clear in which direction and to when I would travel, if given a time machine and only a single round-trip ride.
And possibly even one-way.
Under those stage lights… I’d lose the fur coat too. Though in my case, these days, I might have to use an electric razor.
She shows up in Ed Piskor’s Hip Hop Family Tree as well.
If I had that book it would receive a place of honor on my shelf next to my Frank Frazetta cover model paperbacks. If I had those as well, of course.
I could be wrong, but I THINK it was for a different effect other than cooling off.
Let’s not forget Videodrome, Debbie was never afraid of partaking in disturbing imagery.
